There’s some new art on the High Line. Brooklyn-based artist Carol Bove was specially commissioned by Friends of the High Line to create Caterpillar, an installation of seven sculptures dotted around the landscape on the High Line at the Rail Yards. Now through May 2014, you can reserve free tickets for public walks.
Unlike most art installations that I’ve visited, Bove leaves the viewer to their own devices in understanding and interpreting the art, giving them with no information or background about the individual pieces. I don’t think they even have names. It will be interesting to see how the wild plants grown up and around the art as the seasons progress.
Waiting It Out on Flickr.
I surprised I haven’t thrown this photo up on here yet. It’s a bit dated now but it’s one of my favorites, so much so that I even got a massive print and have it hanging in my bedroom. The Mary Day and Victory Chimes were hold up in the harbor late one morning as it was far too foggy to head out. I feel very small when standing under the sails of these old masters of the sea.

Neat optical illusion going on down at the Boston Museum of Fine Arts. I don’t know if it’s still there since this photo was taken September 2010 when I was in Boston for two months completing a project for school. I’ll let you try and figure out how it was done.
Iconic on Flickr.
I remember walking past this wall and seeing the side of a decaying building. Now it’s an impressive work of art. A group of large murals have been popping up along the High Line in recent weeks and they’re all very well done. This one is the most colourful that I’ve seen so far. It’s a much more pleasant image to look at rather than another billboard with an advertisement for something I have no interest in.
